Pet Obesity Awareness

According to a survey from the Association for Pet Obesity Awareness (APOP):

  • 54% of our dogs and cats (that makes 88.4 million!) are overweight!
  • 53% of adult dogs are overweight
  • 55% of adult cats are overweigh
  • Percentages are SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER than last year’s survey results
  • 2011-->24.9 % of adult cats and 21.4% of adult dogs were overweight

What this survey tells us:

  • More owners are unaware!
  • 22% of dog owners and 15% of cat owners considered their pets to be ‘normal’, when they were in fact overweight
  • “We’ve made fat pets the new normal”!
